According to People, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared a post on their Instagram page that offered comforting words to those who are feeling lonely during the social distancing and self-isolation phase.

[Meghan and Harry] had started to self-isolate in their Victoria Island home. In addition to that, the pair has no plans to receive friends or visitors for the next month. 


In the post, the couple also gave shoutouts to Crisis Text Line, a nonprofit organization whose 24-hour services have been made available all through the U.K., U.S., and Canada.

They also gave a shoutout out to Shout U.K., which is another 24/7 text service based in the U.K. and Kids Help Phone, which is a Canadian-based corporation administering 24/7 professional counseling and help for the youth.

Before their post, it had been reported that Meghan and Harry were paying close attention to the instructions given to them by the government. A royal source, who made the revelation to People, stated that:

“They are taking government advice, and if and when they are specifically made aware of being in contact with someone who has tested positive, they will act accordingly.”

The couple had also asked people to show compassion to people around them as they form a united front worldwide.


Meghan and her husband had said through Instagram that people need to “approach each other and our communities with empathy and kindness are indisputably important right now.”

With their numerous posts on social media, many have asked if the royal couple were truly putting any tips into practice.


To answer that question, an insider exclusively told Closer Weekly that the royal couple was indeed “taking precautions to protect” not only themselves but also their son, Archie, from getting COVID-19.

To that end, the couple had started to self-isolate in their Victoria Island home. In addition to that, the pair has no plans to receive friends or visitors for the next month.
